Support during the Covid-19 pandemic
Some resources as we live through the COVID-19 lockdown and beyond.
We know of lots of stories of neighbours helping out each other, and have had communications from outside of Westwood Heath asking for support for elderly or vulnerable residents which have been responded to.
If you do know of someone living nearby who may need support, please do check in with them - and bear in mind this may change on a week to week basis as people self-isolate.
If you live outside of Westwood Heath and need to contact us about an elderly or vulnerable relative, please email
If you live in Westwood Heath, we're also going to use the Streetwatch Coordinator email address as a focal point if people need help or assistance
We also intend to set up a mobile number to call - will see how this goes. Thanks to Louise Hughes for coordinating.
If you can shop for someone else and save a journey then please do so - there's no special mechanism for this but those on our Facebook page can make requests or offer help.
There have been lots of posts on Facebook suggesting non-supermarket places that are open and/or stocked and we'll maintain the list here and on the Facebook page.
